Spice of your Tuesday? How about a new cover for this little YA/Paranormal/Horror story!

And if you haven't read it yet, why not? It's only 99 cents to download -- and you can catch an excerpt below. 


“Can you tell what they’re talking about?” Todd had finished off his M&Ms and trail mix and was starting on a bag of Twizzlers. How he kept so skinny and ate so much was a mystery.

“Maybe they’re getting cold feet. Sully looked a little freaked, right?”

Todd shrugged. “I hadn’t noticed. Then again, I have noticed you’ve barely taken your eyes off of her."


“You can deny it all you want, Captain Denial, but you’ve been making googly eyes at her all night."

Catch scoffed. “Googly eyes? She’s fifteen, Todd. I’m seventeen—”

“Is two years so much?”

Catch couldn’t believe this conversation was happening. “Toddy, do me a favor and butt out of my love life."

“What love life?” Catch smacked him on the back of the head. “Come on, what serious girlfriend have you had, like, ever?"

“For your information, Sandy Bayless drew a picture of me once.”

“Sandy Bayless drew a picture of you? Why?”

Catch’s frustration was building. He rubbed his face and grumbled.

“Why’d she draw a picture of you, Jonah?”

“Maybe she dug me.” 

Though saying it out loud suddenly seemed absurd. Sandy Bayless was homecoming queen. And she had been tied to the hip with the quarterback of the football team since freshman year.

“It’s not easy being a Thornwacker, is it? Even if you’re a wrestling star.”

Catch recalled the times he was teased in school for his parents’...hobby. The yelling, the name calling. The word FREAK had followed him until he joined the wrestling team in junior high--and won. Every. Single. Match. 

That’s where he and Todd differed. Todd embraced being an outcast. He embraced all the weirdness that went along with being Mary and Sebastian Thornwacker's offspring. Catch preferred being the normal guy...who happened to chase the paranormal at night.
